(Stokes County) They’re Sad, Not Bad: Understanding How Trauma Affects Early Brain Development

September 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Science is just beginning to understand how early childhood experiences affect health, development,

and behavior as the child grows. Is it nature or nurture? Research shows that it is a combination of genetics as well as early experiences that are essential for healthy development and problem solving skills. This workshop will explore the effects of trauma on the developing brain, especially in infancy and early childhood, what those effects can look like in terms of behavior, and how to help heal trauma through relationship and connection. This information is designed to help parents, foster parents, other caregivers and professionals understand the emotional, mental and behavioral impact of early abuse and neglect in children, who often come to the attention of the child welfare system.

Presenter: Melissa Kirkland, Behavior and Inclusion Support Specialist

Cost: $5.00

2.0 DCDEE Contact Hours

Deadline to register: 9/19/19
